UN rights expert discusses financial complicity in human rights violations

In a report submitted to the 28th Session of the Human Rights Council, the UN Independent Expert on Foreign Debt and Human Rights focused on the question of lending to States engaged in gross human rights violations. The report intends to contribute to a better understanding of when financial support may contribute to, or sustain the commission of, large-scale gross human rights violations by sketching a rational choice framework premised on the incentives of authoritarian Governments and private and official lenders.

In the report, the Independent Expert reviews the existing empirical evidence of the relationship between sovereign financing, human rights practices and the consolidation of Governments engaged in gross violations of human rights. The document also contains some interim conclusions and invites stakeholders to discuss them.
